It’s driven me mad for a long time, but I finally stumbled across the name of the medical profession insignia today.
It’s something that I needed to know a while back, and you see it in hospitals and on ambulances. it seems to be an internationally recognised symbol.
It’s no really that important – but I’m making sure it’s here so I don’t forget! Based upon a Greek myth, it’s a short herald staff with two serpents intwined upon it. There’s an entry over at Wikipedia (naturally).
